Our Mission

MISSION/FUNCTIONAL STATEMENT

At CSUDH, the Student disAbility Resource Center office is committed to providing opportunities for higher education to students with disabilities, to increase the representation of persons with disabilities in its student enrollment, and to make its programs, activities, and facilities fully accessible to persons with disabilities. This includes identification and removal of architectural barriers, consultation on course accommodations, the loan of assistive devices, advising, and referral to on- and off-campus offices.

DEFINITION OF DISABILITY

We define a "disabling condition" as one which limits functions such as walking, standing, sitting, writing, communicating, seeing, or hearing. Students with temporary or permanently disabling conditions are eligible for service. All disabilities must be verified by a health care professional; this includes physicians, counselors, chiropractors, etc.

GOAL OF THE STUDENT disABILITY RESOURCE CENTER

The major focus of our office is on the individual needs of students. The goal is for each student participant to utilize the available services, so independence and full integration into university life can be maximized.

ACCESSIBILITY

All classroom and campus facilities are physically accessible at CSUDH. Even the student housing on campus includes eighteen wheelchair-accessible apartments.
